    Not every critic is like jec, thanks.  While I admit the temptation to try and start fresh is strong, the reality is that our political system is so rigged in favour of the 'two party' setup that the only real chance to 'split a party' occurs when a party is completely self-immolating with voters.  And so far, that really only describes the Republicans.  Whatever else they are, Dems are usually bright enough to at least not outright alienate every non-old-white-guy voter.

    Still, the reality is that 'fixing' the party really does involve pushing out the RINOS who constantly make it so easy for the media to push their false equivalency narratives.  We've got to stop them from being able to simply say 'both sides do it' on pretty much every issue.

      ...better the occasional faults of a government that lives in a spirit of charity, than the consistent omissions of a government frozen in the ice of its own indifference. -FDR, 1936
